Does anyone have any idea or also have rectal pain as one of their symptoms?

  • Could this be your problem - Proctalgia fugax? I have suffered with this problem since I was a child. It doesn't happen all the time and I can go for months in between episodes.

    sometimes we start to experience pain in various parts of our body after surgery. No question, our bodies are a stereo system, not mono. So what happens to one area will show up in another area. We sprain our foot, limp a bit because of that, next thing, our necks start to bother us. It all really just falls into place.

    Still, when another part of the body starts to hurt after trauma ( surgery is controlled trauma ) we can almost expect hurting from some where else. I used to get alarmed over things like that, but after 11+ surgeries, I tend to shrug it off. Which is not always a good thing also...

    Trust your body, when something aint right and it lasts more than a couple of days, ASK Why
